Hi I'm LAYNA!!

I love serving the Lord. Texas is where my heart is. Washing dishes by hand is therapy to me and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a Nursing student and am loving every minute of it! I work for Utah State's Developmental Center meaning I get to help kids with disabilities..yeah, it's pretty sweet. Service is just a part of my nature, and I have my goodly parents to thank for that;) Their faithful to the Lord and everyone He places in their path which is seriously, inspiring. I also have 3 amazing big brothers who I admire and look up to ..literally. They have each blessed me in so many ways, not to mention my nieces and nephews and awesome sisters!! Lil Chris is our unofficial adopted baby brother. He is so full of laughs and talks like he's 30 although he's only 9! Other than that I like to play volleyball and rugby for fun along with a bunch of board games. ..and I'm a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon, because I know through the power of the Holy Ghost that this is His only true and living church. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is literally as its name states: THE CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints. It was restored back to the earth in 1830, but has been on the earth since the days of Adam, so you can actually say that we're the oldest church. I am a Mormon, more respectfully known as a LATTER-DAY SAINT, because I know that this Church is truly the Lord's Church and Kingdom being built on the earth. I know that it is built upon a foundation of apostles and prophets with Christ himself as the chief cornerstone see Ephesians 2.19-20. I am Mormon because I have come to a better understanding of the Savior's infinite Atonement ..see 2 Nephi 9.7.. through the teachings of the Book of Mormon, and I desire to share it with EVERYONE who is willing to accept and act upon the Lord's invitation to come unto Him ..Matt 11.28. I know that because of His sacrifice for me personally, that all things are made possible see Luke 1.37. I invite anyone reading this and wondering what would have over 14 million people around the world working together so anxiously without pay, in the service of God, to simply request missionaries and find out for yourselves. Our invitation is for you not to take just our word alone, but to ask God himself James 1.5. My life has completely changed for the best, how could I not share? The only question left to ask is, why aren't YOU Mormon? ..note:if you are already a member, go and share the LOVE!!

How I live my faith

I am living my faith now by serving as a full-time RETURN Missionary. For 18-months I got to spend every waking hour sharing the Gospel. It sure wasn't easy, but I tell ya, I wouldn't be anywhere else right about now! Through scripture study, earnest prayer, day to day teaching, door to door proselyting and community service, we stand as witnesses of Christ and representatives of His church. I am witnessing the marvelous work and wonder of the Lord and I LOVE IT!!! Through faith I have seen mountains move: mountains of pain, despair, addiction, fear and trial have all been moved by this sacred work. I know that the Savior leads and directs this work and I pray that ALL will receive it.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

LAYNA!!
As a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ, I come to YOUR door and knock. My purpose is solely to invite you to also reap the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If the Savior knocked on your door, would you open it? If He sent two or three of His servants ..Matthew 18.16.. to share His gospel with you, would you listen? How could we ever claim to be His followers and not share the divine message? I know the Savior's love for you and I is remarkable, divine and incomprehensible, but most importantly, I know His love is REAL. Of course representatives of Jesus Christ would do just as He would and come to YOUR door and knock. Of course He would provide every possible way for you to receive the fullness of His Gospel. As missionaries, we are sacrificing time from our families, to help YOU & YOUR Family build your personal relationships with Him. So that you too can make the changes necessary that will align with His Restored GOSPEL, so that you can excercise your faith and follow His example and be baptized by His power with His authority. So that you can also receive one of our Father in Heaven's most precious gifts, the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Who will act as your companion, as you worthily live and keep His commandments to help you endure throughout your life. So if we knock on your door, please let us in! haha!..not kidding, it's hot.
